Half Day Gold Hunt with a Free Pet


DolanDave

Recommended Posts

Got a text yesterday from my buddy Chris, who said dude, get your :minelab:, and lets get out there !!!! ( Well something like that , hehe !!! ) . I told him I can only hunt a half day, even though today was just a great day for a full day of hunting today, darn it !!!!  Ended up finding almost 10 grams today.. :) . The large piece was a little more than a foot down, and just made a break in the threshold, I kicked some dirt out of the way, and it made the nice mellow weewoo sound, and I was like :ROFL: . Some digging in the side of a wash a little more than a foot down, and got a :nugget: .....  maybe a foot away I found another small nugget right on top of the ground, and found another small piece in another wash.

  I also brought home a new pet,  and the good ol U.S. deserts give them away for free, as you can see in the picture, he is enjoying his new home....  I have been bringing lizards home in the backyard for years, I have lizards everywhere, but they sure take care of all the spiders and cockroaches, as I havent seen any for a long time....

Here in New Mexico that would be a Gold Bolder.   Your little Boy Lizards just thinks he's about to be Munched.

Like Birds in a field.  Just waiting for something to start wiggling in the hole.  I've never been dogged by a lizard.  Your Special ! LOL   Man OH Man that's some nice Gold.
